The Phantom Reflex is a spring assisted knife. Give the blade a small push via the thumb-stud and the knife deploys the blade the rest of the way. The blade is bead blasted ATS-34 steel with a plain edge. The Phantom Reflex also has a flipper on the back of the knife that can be pushed to open the blade. The handle of the Reflex is gold anodized. The knife features a pocket clip for easy carry. Overall and excellent knife and legal almost everywhere.
